What do we reckon the longest green road is in the UK? I.e no tarmac sections or crossings?

I am sure this has come up before ?

I thought 12 miles was the record

Broomway off Essex coast is in the top contenders

I remember first time I rode Rudland Rigg with John Robinson. He said at the start "if you don't want a pee now you will by the time we get to the other end!", how right he was! :lol:

As far as i know:

1. Ruddland Rigg 15.95 km / 9.91 miles

2. Morcambe Bay 12.49 km / 7.76 miles*

3. Broomway = 10.17 km /6.31 miles

4. Wayfarer = 9.46 km / 5.87 miles



* But has anyone ever ridden it? I know a few people who have done it in 4x4s

I suspect the longest green road in the UK would be in Scotland.
